I usually don’t follow the weather forecast but i had to follow when i got a notification stating it will snow in our area and we are facing a snow storm. The whole of Atlanta was excited as its a place where we don’t get snow and it was predicted that we would get approximately 1-2 inches of snow but still all my friends were excited. If you know me in person you would know how much i get worried for each and everything so i started bugging my husband z head to work from home as i felt our roads won’t be safe for the snow and i don’t want to risk. But he had to go for work. As it didn’t snow still 10 a.m. i kept quite. But still i was excited as its my first snow in Atlanta and were ready with layering stuffs for both Alizeh and I to get drenched in snow. Around 10.30 a.m. saw the snow slit cum rain but by the moment we got ready it stopped and both alizeh and I were waiting in the sunroom to know when it would start. Then around 11.00 we got snow and just called my husband to start from work and he acknowledged that we will start. So i was relaxed. He reached home before it started heavy with almighty z grace.
When it was heavy i felt BabyA wouldn’t enjoy much but to my surprise she enjoyed to the core where our nap was shifted to the evening slot and she was excited to play and run in thw snow. She saw her bootmarks and made snowballs, tried to catch the snow what not. Maa shaa allah nature teaches us a lot. We had a continuous snow and we went for a walk in the snow. Who would do that? We did it as we enjoyed. Husbandman wasn’t keeping well but still he joined us and we had a blast. The Georgia state isn’t ready for this kind and there are many people who suffered a lot due to power outage. And due to this power outage we had a guest fromĀ  his office. BabyA welcomed them and played with them and made them feel comfortable. We had wonderful time for sure.
Im pretty sure there would have been accidents happening as they wouldn’t know how to control their vehicles as they aren’t used to drive in snow. So there would be road closures for sure. Luckily we all stayed at home safe and enjoyed the snow al hamdulilah!!

Growing up as A MOM- Reasons to climb a Slide.

We went to a mall nearby where they have a small playarea. They had a small slide over there and babyA being small i didn’t think she could climb the slide. When she did everyone gave me a strange look but i loved her spirit and started to film it and enjoyed the spirit in her with pride. Later when I came back home and sat back and analyzed why did I enjoy it, i came up with a list. So now I am going to share why a child should be allowed to climb the slide.
1. A child can climb the slide only when they put in their complete strength and energy. Its a form of being active and a form of exercise. And a person cannot climb to the top just like that. It needs complete determination and energy and self motivation ofcourse.

2. As i said climbing the top cannot happen without will power and self motivation. To reach the top the child will analyse and find out a way to reach the top. Hence creativity is kindled in the child. The gross motor skills also play a keyrole.
3. A child cannot reach the top in the first attempt so here the kid is able to learn the concepts of failure and success. The kid is able to learn how to accept failures positively and pile up the confidence within to transfer the failures as stepping stones to grab success finally.
4. The child is able to learn how to achieve the goal and what are ways necessary to achieve the goal.
5. The child is able to trust him/her. And also learns how to solve a problem.
These are the ways which i figured out. If you agree with me please do share with us why do you feel its necessary for a child to climb a slide or any other sport or game that looks apparently large for the age!! Do share if you like this article.
